We've combined assertive mustard greens, smoky trout and crisped potatoes in this interpretation of a hash. If you prefer a milder green, substitute mature spinach or chard. Make it a Meal: Lay a poached egg on top and serve with sliced tomatoes and cracked pepper.

Smoked Trout Hash with Mustard Greens

Makes: 4 servings, about 1 cup each

Active Time:

Total Time:


  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound precooked diced red-skinned potatoes, (about 2 1/2 cups; see Note)
  • 2 tablespoons whole-grain mustard
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 4 ounces smoked trout, skin removed, flaked
  • 4 cups thinly sliced mustard greens


  1. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add potatoes and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden and crispy, adjusting heat if necessary to prevent burning, 8 to 12 minutes.
  2. Whisk mustard, vinegar, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Add to the potatoes along with trout and greens. Cook, stirring, until the greens are just wilted, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Remove from heat; stir 1 to 2 tablespoons water into the hash if it seems dry. Serve hot.

Tips & Notes

  • Note: Look for precooked diced potatoes in the refrigerated section of most supermarket produce departments—near other fresh, prepared vegetables.
